The South African Disabled Golf Association is thrilled to announce longtime SADGA board member Craig Moorgas as its new Executive Director.
The newly-created position will see Moorgas occupy a multi-faceted role and essentially become the “face” of the SADGA. To this end, he will speak to the media on behalf of the SADGA during the Canon SA Disabled Golf Open and brief them on any noteworthy happenings within the association. Furthermore, he’ll also be charged with finding corporate sponsorships.
Moorgas is no stranger to representing the SADGA within South African golf having been appointed to the Golf RSA Board of directors last year – a role he continues to occupy.
On his appointment as Executive Director, Moorgas said it was an honour to be appointed and hopes to play his part in helping disabled golf continue to flourish in the future.
“I have been involved with the SADGA for a number of years now so to be appointed as Executive Director is a great honour,”Moorgas said.
“I’d like to say thank you to the Board of Directors for entrusting me with the position and cannot wait to work closely with my fellow SADGA colleagues to take this already world-class association to even greater heights.”
SADGA Chairman Enver Hassen remarked that Moorgas’ extensive experience within disabled sport will prove incredibly valuable to the SADGA.
“Besides golf, Craig has also done amazing work within South African Wheelchair Basketball and his knowledge of disabled sport in South Africa will certainly be a great asset to the SADGA,” commented Hassen.
“In Craig we not only have someone who cares deeply about disabled golf but who will fight tooth and nail to raise the profile of the SADGA.”
“On behalf of everyone at the SADGA, congratulations on your appointment Craig and I wish you every success during your tenure,” concluded Hassen.
